SUZANNAH OF NEW QUEBEC STREET


The new Suzannah boutique: 3 New Quebec Street, London W1 7RE.  

London based designer Suzannah Crabb is a celebrity favoruite with over fifteen years in the industry under belt, but despite her high profile clients her new London shop feels like an undiscovered gem!
Suzannah’s offering of vintage inspired ready-t0-wear, bespoke made-to-measure design and bridal makes her eponymous label a unique one, of which I am a big fan.

I’ve admired Suzannah’s work for quite some time and am very excited to report that she now has a boutique in central London: a stones throw from Selfridges on New Quebec Street, W1. 

I popped in to see Suzannah's new spring/summer ’13 ready-to-wear collection (gorgeous prints and beautiful ’50s and ’60s silhouettes in lemon yellow and oyster hues) but couldn’t resist a sneaky peak at the wedding dresses too, which I have to say are absolutely beautiful! I love the ‘Kaleidoscope’ white silk dress (see below), perfect for a contemporary city wedding.

Whilst I was there Suzannah altered my red silk cocktail dress (from a few seasons ago) to make it a perfect fit, it was such a luxurious experience having the designer herself fit my dress. I cannot wait to wear it now!

  2. You are good at dressing, definitely! I like casual dressing, especially addicted to leather jackets, just get a new jacket on cwmalls.com and I really want to recommend it for its style and quality.
